Franchisee success stories
Exclusive interview with Jane Perry, Bluebird Care Edinburgh and Glasgow
Jane Perry, along with her husband John, have been running their Bluebird Care franchise in Edinburgh since 2008. After being made redundant for the fourth time from her job in the finance industry, Jane knew that a change of career was needed. Having had some negative experiences when looking for help for her terminally ill grandmother, Jane was passionate about making a difference in the care industry. She also knew the demand was there for a good care company, one that valued their customers, and so it was an industry with vast potential for those wanting to make a career from it. Jane began to research the franchise opportunities and liking the ethos and values of Bluebird Care, Jane knew it was the right franchise for her. The business has gone from strength to strength. In 2013, Jane purchased Bluebird Care Glasgow and now employs over 130 people; including her stepson and niece, making it a truly family business. Read more
